This year, to align with the museum’s current focus, the spotlight was on women’s achievements within the global economy – as entrepreneurs, business executives, workers, caretakers, or investors. The event also showcased the food and beverages of female vendors, chefs and producers, and dynamic female performers lent creative flair to the evening.
